FINANCIAL ISSUES - MARITAL PROPERTY V. SEPARATE PROPERTY
I am buying a house by myself. The loan is only under my name. If I get divorced, can my husband force me to sell the house or is he automatically an owner because he is married to me ?Answer:
If you purchase the house in your name only with funds you had prior to the marriage or funds received as an inheritance and which were kept in an account in your name, the house would be considered separate property, not marital property, and your spouse would have no claim to it.
